From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription These amphipods are highly flattened at the sides and measure up to 10 mm long. The species has a
whitish colour with brown patches. The head has a small curved rostrum and slender antennae of
equal size. Eyes are large and reniform. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In the 1976-1986 period Atylus swammerdami was observed across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea with a low distribution frequency and in low densities (up to 60 ind./m2). A similar distribution pattern was also found in the 1994-2001 period. The most remarkable difference was the high distribution frequency near the southern Zeeland Banks. This is where the highest densities were observed (up to 170 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Ubiquitous, and often common [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Atylus swammerdami displays no clear preference for sediments with a specific grain size: the species is found in sediments with median grain sizes up to 550 μm with a low relative occurrence. However, a clear preference can be seen with regard to the mud content. Atylus swammerdami reaches a relative occurrence of over 40% in sediments with a mud content of 30-40%. The species is nevertheless also found in sediments with lower or higher mud contents (up to 50%). [details]
